Audience Reviews for For a Lost Soldier

It's very slow until Jeroen meets Walt. I was pretty bored at first, but once they meet it turns into a good movie. What I like most about it is the fact that it's not about anything, ie it's not a 'gay' movie and it's not a 'pedophile' movie. It's just two characters who (think?) they're in love and their short time together. What I also like is that it was very natural. The chemistry wasn't forced and it wasn't awkward at all, which is always good.
